I heard about this cave all my life. I finally took the time to visit. My family & I are native Puertoricans, but I live in the states. The pricing is 20 + tax/pp for tourists and 10+tax for native islanders. The tour lasted all but an hour. Granted the land is private property & the owners can do what... More

A great place to learn about Puertorican Culture, amazing view. Wonderful place to take pictures and interact with nature. Is a bucketlist cave to explore, I strongly recommend it.

My rating of this attraction is not due to the attraction itself, it’s due to their pricing policy... I've taken guest here when it was free years ago... OK improvements have been made to trail; rest rooms and staff are courteous and knowledgeable about cave history... It’s actually a very small cave comparatively speaking to the rest of the island..... More

This is completely a tourist trap. the property is privately owned. Initially, this was free to the public. As it gain popularity among the locals, the owner started to charge $5. The word got out through social media, and the price was increased, to $20 for tourists and $11 for Puertorricans (you must show your drivers license). Nothing fancy here... More

At 2:00 the Guia start giving some... More

This is a must see. It requires some climbing, hiking, but all worth it. The guides give you helmets and point out the petroglyphs in the caves.

Tours are on the hour and offered in both Spanish and English. Had to pay in cash ($21 per person) since their CC reader was down. There are bathrooms available. Note, this isn't the easiest walking tour--people might be challenged by some of the slopes and "steps" that have to be taken if you are out of shape or not... More

If you are using Google maps to find this place you will be lost. That should mark it better, its just on the gas station, that I didn't stop to ask where is it exactly, would never notice it. They are making only hourly tours, so I came 2 min late after 3 and they told me that I have... More

Our boating excursion was cancelled due to rough seas so we were looking for something else to do. Decided to try this cave. My husband and I are in our early sixties and our son and daughter in law are in their thirties. We all enjoyed this cave very much. It was a bit more rustic than we had expected.... More
